9 Essays: Buddhism & The 12 Step Model of Recovery (PDF download)
These essays have grown from the Meditation and Recovery group which began meeting weekly at the San Francisco Zen Center in 2000.
Though written by one person, they represent the experience, strength and hope of many. In accord with the traditions of anonymity in Twelve Step programs, the author remains unnamed. And in the spirit of gratitude which marks both paths, these essays are offered to anyone who has use for them, without copyright. They may be distributed free of charge. Our only requests are that the attribution to the San Francisco Zen Center remain, that this introduction be included and that copies not be sold for profit.
We make these essays available as a beginning text for those wishing to explore the connection between practice and recovery.
